lol you guys are all smart asses lol Anyway I usually watch tv or listen to music while I play. Usually listen to music and have the tv on a baseball game or something that doesnt take alot of attention.

Watch TV or listen to a CD. I also tend to play at multiple tables. Not always a good thing, but it keeps me from getting completely bored and irritated when a table is too slow.

I vary depending on my mood or what I am playing. I will listen to music the majority of the time.

i personally either listen to music and just have something on the tv to glance at every now and then, or i watch a video. i end up watching a lot of counter-strike movies (best part is i can have them up while im playing and be like "oh damn that was sick, crap lemme bet")

If im playing one table I usually turn on the TV, mostly watching sports as a sitcom or movie is too hard to pay attention to while playing. Two tables I pull up iTunes and put some music on and try to focus mostly on the tables. The music is just kind of background noise.

I voted for other as I do alot while playing poker, during the early/mid stages of a tourney, I'll watch TV and read posts here then I turn on the music during the mid/late stages as to pay more attention to the table.

Lately I've been watching MST3K. It's nice because I don't have to pay attention to the movie and it's still entertaining.

I try not to be too distracted while I play... but I almost always listen to music. Mostly punk-rock, but I will listen to main stream stuff - anything fast and upbeat. Keeps me in good mood and my mind going.

Sometimes I'll listen to music, depends on the game. That's about it though, no TV / music / trying to do work or anything

I watch tv, listen to music , take care of my mom ,surf the web ,post on cc ,smoke out ,etc. etc.
I know if you're serious ,you should do none of this , and would love to do or hear nothing else while playing , but have NEVER even tried it.

Just playing on one table would send me on unbridled monkey tilt.

Besides eating, drinking, and (yuck) smoking I can only watch TV (or rather have it on). I just cannot concentrate when I listen to music for some reason.:dontknow:

Single table, no music, no tv, talk to myself, fight with giant Pyrenees puppy for foot room under the desk, remove cat from keyboard, peek around cat to see the screen, shove -- uh, gently lift cat and place on floor, repeat as necessary.
